So much for the local arts initiative. If they have to buy art from out of town, that should pretty much sum up the quality of art locally.

Will they put the art on publically owned land Sherry DeJanes is illegally squatting on?

P.S. - Show Me "facts" only fool gullible eastsiders. Don't even try that shit in the real city.

"The real city" seems to be getting samller all the time.
Now it's down to just the streetcar supporters in mid-town.
They're going to have to dig mighty deep to finance the hundreds of millions their dream is going to end up costing.
Life in "the real city"; it's not just for barristas anymore.

Ha. Downtown, midtown and plaza were 75% of the revenue for them proposed system for the east side.

The real city could generates enough revenue to build lines down main AND Broadway with a federal match...

Nutter and Sinquefield can't buy our votes and Supporters of More Angry Reactionary Teapartiers KC can't lie enough to fool us.

D day: November.

KC = KC, again.

Actual Size Artworks of Stoughton, Wis., one of the award recipients, reportedly is planning an installation featuring an interactive model of a large sink with coins circling down into the drain.

The artist has tentatively titled the installation piece as "Sly's Folly."

Fuck 'expansion.' Nobody ever wanted it in the first place.

What part of 55% don't you understand.

Will be expanded to plaza within 5 years.

Meanwhile, eastside will lose 15% more of its population.

Smart, KC!
